As Autodesk moves everybody to subscription, users are now able to access installations for their products and updates right inside their Autodesk account.
However, we have seen more than one instance where a user tries to download their software and Autodesk defaults to the “install now” option, which fails a high percentage of the time.
While it is possible to choose and select the download option each time you install software, as described here: Use Browser Download, it is actually possible to set Browser Download as your default option, and here’s how.
Inside your Autodesk account at manage.autodesk.com, on the left click on Devices:
At the right, under your account name, click the gear for Settings:
Inside the settings dialog box, on the Download preferences tab, choose Browser Download:
That’s it. Now every time you download software this will be your default option.
